New Amsterdam Market and Other News

It’s been a while since our last post and a lot has been happening.

First off, we’ll be featuring mussels and oysters at the New Amsterdam Market this Sunday. Be sure to stop by for a sample of cooked mussels or shucked oysters. If you love them (which we’re sure you will!), you can purchase some to take home. We’ll also be offering recipes and guides on how to prepare mussels. We hope you can make it and support the local market culture as well as try some amazing fresh shellfish!

Some more details about the market:
New Amsterdam Market will hold the second of four monthly markets–part of their first Fall Market Season–on Sunday, October 25, 2009, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Come meet the growing roster of vendors and support New Amsterdam’s mission to revive and reinvent the regional public market in the City of New York. Farmers, producers, and purveyors will sell fresh seasonal produce, meats and dairy, wild-gathered greens, breads, cheeses, fermented foods, fruits, wine, and cider–all from the Northeast.

Each of the monthly markets will have a different focus that will demonstrate the breadth and scope of our vision for a permanent public market in the City of New York. The October market will be smaller in size, and will highlight Meat Vendors and Purveyors more prominently.
The markets are held on South Street, between Beekman Street and Peck Slip in Lower Manhattan. The market will also offer prepared foods to take away and enjoy along the public piers on South Street.
